Pro - Am Invitational - Friday 5th November, 2010
On Friday 5th November The Phuket Property Dot Com Pro Am Invitational paired top professional golfers with amateurs at Phuket's Blue Canyon Country Club in a round of golf to raise money for Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation. This was the first charity Pro Am golf invitational of its kind on Phuket Island and offered over US$150,000 of prizes. The 2010 Pro Am Invitational brought 30 touring golf professionals from around the world to Phuket, further cementing Phuket's position as a leading golf resort destination in Asia.
The title of inaugural Phuket Property Dot Com Pro Am Invitational winner was clinched by no other than Thai superstar Udorn Duangdecha and his team of three Thai amateur golfers, with a combined handicap of only 13! Their impressive team score of 92 was just enough to see off the fast finishing Simon Yates team with 90 points and big hitting American Corey Harris and his team at 89 points. One of Udorn's teammates, Khun Waracharaton, actually shot the 6th lowest gross score of the day, to beat out 24 of the touring professionals!
As well as having a great day of golf, the evening's festivities at the Sheraton Grande Laguna Phuket was a huge success where everyone enjoyed a fabulous meal and (even more so) the free flow beer and wine provided by White Box Restaurant, Siam Winery and Cape Yamu.
A big thanks for main sponsor Phuket Property.com, Sheraton Grande Laguna for hosting the gala dinner, and to White Box Restaurant, Siam Winery and Cape Yamu for providing food and beverage throughout the evening. Phuket Gazette, PGTV and 91.5FM were our media partners for the event.
